This is good. I followed all the ingredients. It smelled a little strong when cooking but it tasted great when done. I only used 1/2 of sugar. More was not needed. Made for Holiday Tag 2007

Didn't have black tea, and couldn't find it here so used the green that I had on hand and have to say it was so good. Don't know what I liked the best, the wonderful aroma or the taste, both equally good. Such a wonderful blend of spices. I cut the recipe in half and also cut the sugar down as I'm not big on sweet tea, but do LOVE the spices. Used a dry white wine and this made for an excellant drink that I'm planning on serving the next time I have company over during this Holiday Season. Made for I Recommend - We give Thanks.

Well put me in the "love it" category - this is terrific! Loved the aroma too. I only used half the sugar called for and used a zinfandel wine. Great holiday drink - thanks for sharing the recipe!
